British films p.d. after 50 years?
(If all GATT-eligible films were restored, then these films are still under copyright.)
I couldn't find a renewal in the U.S.
Dentist in the Chair (1960)
[ based on novel by Matthew Finch ]
Make Mine a Million (1959)
Davy (1958)[Edit: renewal found]
Nowhere to Go (1958)
The Shiralee (1957)
[ based on a novel by D'Arcy Niland ]
